I do all of my approaches in the day, at Target and things, and I was just wondering about the approach itself. Not what to say or anything, because I've developed some good stuff, but just the approach.
I'll elaborate: 90% of the time, the girl I want to approach is looking at clothes or something, in her own little world and completely pre-occupied. Now, I really want my opener ("If you were my sister, and it was your birthday, would you rather have a gift card or an actual item?") to come off as spontaneous and everything, but it's hard when I'm sort of having to come up to the side of them and getting their attention by saying "Hey" or something, and then going into my opener, which, when approached like that, doesn't seem very congruent.
That opener works well when I'm walking down the isle and a girl is walking in the opposite direction. We make eye contact, I smile, and open that same way. Things go well that way, but I'm having a hard time figuring out the other way.
Thanks a lot in advance for any advice.
